First lady Michelle Obama was interrupted by a heckler about 10 minutes into a speech at a campaign fundraiser in D.C. on Tuesday.
A woman started shouting and calling for the president to sign an executive order on gay rights, according to a pool report.
“One of the things I don’t do well is this,” the first lady said, before leaving the lectern and moving over toward the woman.
Obama said you can “listen to me or you can take the mic, but I’m leaving. You all decide. You have one choice.”
The crowd started shouting that they wanted Obama to stay and one woman near the heckler said “You need to go!”
As she was escorted out, the heckler shouted: “…lesbian looking for federal equality before I die.”
